Sedating dogs on planes

You may be able to monitor your pet in-cabin, but what will you do if your pet shows signs of distress?

Also, it is important to keep in mind that the air pressure in-cabin is actually the same air pressure in the cargo hold.

:/ Who says we're not allowed to sedate a cat for flight? In the hold, no, don't drug them as the air pressure is lower than usual and may cause breathing complications.

In the cabin you will want to listen to what your vet says, as it may or may not be okay depending on your pet's health.

Thanks again, Thomas, and good luck with everything!

When flying commercially, they are fortunate their weights allow them in the airliners’ main cabins rather than the cargo hold.

You can also place a T-shirt or something that smells like you in the crate, and many people also try natural/herbal remedies.

Thanks for your question and good luck with your pet travels!

Sedatives can interfere with regular breathing and other bodily responses, and pets may react differently and unexpectedly to medications when they are in the air.
